Expect many new reprints

According to The New York Times, Circuit Judge Richard Posner, writing for a three-judge panel from the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals, has declared that most (but not all) of Arthur Conan Doyle's dozens of Sherlock Holmes stories are now part of the public domain. Conan Doyle's estate has apparently been quite aggressive in maintaining their hold on the character, and may still appeal the decision, but for now all but the final ten stories, which were published between 1913 and 1927, are fair game.
